The Ministry of Public Works issued an advisory about lane and road closures that will be “impacting traffic flow across the island.”

A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works reminds the public that weather permitting, on Thursday, 9 September, public schools are scheduled to resume and advises road users of lane and road closures impacting traffic flow across the island.

“The lane closure locations are:

  • “Mullet Bay Road near Penno’s Wharf, St. George’s;
  • “Harrington Sound Road near Paynter’s Rd, Hamilton;
  • “Harbor Road near Loves Lane, Paget;
  • “Middle Road near Stadium Lane at Esso Service Station, Warwick;
  • “Middle Road near Store Hill, Smith’s;
  • “Middle Road near Georges Bay Road, Southampton; and
  • “Mangrove Bay Road between Cambridge Road & Tween Walls, Sandy’s.

“The road closure locations are:

  • “Harrington Sound Road between Lolly’s Well Road and Harrington Hundreds, Smith’s;
  • “Store Hill between North Shore Road and Middle Road, Smith’s; and
  • “Cemetery Road between Gorham’s lumber yard entrance and St. John’s Rd roundabout, Pembroke.

“Also dependent on the weather, on Thursday, 9 September 2021, between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the section of Harbour Road located between Highwood Lane and Lover’s Lane in Paget will briefly close to all traffic to facilitate a concrete pour for the new wall construction. Road users are advised to detour onto Middle Road and South Road during this time as traffic will not be allowed to pass.

“The Ministry will be providing traffic controls to minimize disruptions as much as possible. However, the motoring public is advised to consider potential traffic delays when planning for travel time.

“The Ministry encourages everyone’s full cooperation and apologizes in advance for any inconvenience that may result.”

    Not sure which brain surgeon would allow so many road works, with some many traffic lights at one time across the island. Geez we know anything govt does work will go on for ever….
    Probably the same genius that put those STUPID rumble strips down, they do more harm then good.

    The delays on Harbour Rd are a disgrace. Think of the thousands of hours of productivity lost.

    Workers are never there, they have traffic lights on some mornings and evenings, when they clearly need a manual sign. This morning W&E finally showed up at 7.50 by which time lines were queuing back to Warwick.

    Will the Minister please fix this. What an unnecessary waste of people’s time.
